Atomic Tracker 13 MNC Alpine Touring Binding BlackSilver 115mmS #ad
Atomic Tracker 13 MNC Alpine Touring Binding Black/Silver, 115mm/S
Atomic Tracker 13 MNC Alpine Touring Binding Black/Silver, 115mm/S #ad - The tracker 13 has become a favorite among aggressive alpine touring skiers who want top notch performance for the descents. While they’re designed more for the downhill than the ascents, it’s still relatively lightweight, easy to switch in between ski and tour mode, and has 2 climbing aid positions for varying pitching while you’re climbing. In a day and age where there are multiple ski boot sole types it’s nice that the tracker 13 is multi-norm certified. For skiers looking to maximize downhill performance and the connection to the snow in their at bindings there really aren’t any others that can compare to the design and performance of the tracker 13. It uses alpine inspired toes and heels placed on a low stand height, lightweight frame that’s super stable. It’s compatible with all normed boot soles thanks to the adjustable sole height. You’ll be exploring and excelling in backcountry terrain before you know it. For many of us the whole point of having an at setup is the downhill, which is where this binding excels. The atomic tracker 13 is an awesome at binding that gives you the stability and control of an alpine binding in a low stand height frame touring design.

Atomic Tracker 13 MNC Alpine Touring Binding Black/Silver, 130mm/S
Atomic Tracker 13 MNC Alpine Touring Binding Black/Silver, 130mm/S #ad - There are a few changes to this year’s version of the tracker. The tracker certainly isn’t as light and fast as a tech binding, but if you’re more interested in short tours, big lines, and all-mountain versatility than long approaches and techy skiing, then it will definitely get the job done. The aluminum double tubes have been strengthened for a burlier ride, the stand height checks in at a low and precise 26mm, and the easily-adjustable toe piece makes getting the fit and release settings right a cinch. Atomic even simplified the base plate to prevent icing and snow buildup, so you’ll spend less time fiddling with your bindings and more time shredding. The addition of multi-norm compatibility (mnc) means it’s compatible with most alpine, touring, and wtr boot soles. With the retention and release of a traditional alpine binding and touring performance that’s downright shocking, the atomic tracker 13 alpinetouring binding can handle just about anything you might want to ski this winter. That’ll save you from having to invest in multiple boots to fit all your bindings, but it doesn’t affect the reliable release and retention of the tracker. It skis like an alpine binding, with a rugged u power toe,oversized platform, and a din that goes to 13, but it’ll get you up to to those backcountry lines you want to ski too, thanks to the 90-degree toe pivot, flat nose, and hike-and-ride switch that can be operated while you’re still locked into the binding.

 

Tyrolia drenalin 13 Alpine Touring Binding Solid Black Short #ad
Tyrolia drenalin 13 Alpine Touring Binding Solid Black, Short
Tyrolia drenalin 13 Alpine Touring Binding Solid Black, Short #ad - The binding’s open cell construction prevents icing near the toe to help you hike with ease. Tyrolia designed its adrenalin 13 alpine touring binding to shed as many ounces as possible while still giving you the powerful performance you want for the descent. And the freeflex platform allows the fr pro toe and fr heel to float atop the ski without inhibiting the ski’s flex, which is a dream for big mountain bombers who want an at binding that still provides every inch of ski flex. And a climbing aid offers three different heights in order to help you cover steep sections efficiently. Just stick your pole’s tip into the plate at the back of the binding to release the heel and you’re ready to climb, and press it back down when you’re ready to ski. Your boot rests 36mm above your skis, which makes it excellent for edging across steep, technical precipices with ease. With a simple flip of a switch, you can change from ski mode to climb mode in order to hike comfortably.

 

Plum Tech Bindings Yak M 14 Alpine Touring Binding One Color One Size #ad
Plum Tech Bindings Yak M 14 Alpine Touring Binding One Color, One Size
Plum Tech Bindings Yak M 14 Alpine Touring Binding One Color, One Size #ad - When you know a pound underfoot equates to anywhere between five and ten pounds on your back, you want an ultralight setup so your legs can rally backcountry’s rowdy cliffs, steep couloirs, and high-altitude peaks. Plum tech’s yak m 14 alpine touring binding blends a backcountry-friendly weight with a freeride-focused din for hard-charging skiers who prefer traveling far for king lines. The rotating heel is pretty classic though, because it’s too easy to switch from ski mode to walk mode–or even the two heel risers–using only your ski poles without taking skis off. Plum changed the proximity of the yak’s tech pins for an easier step-in. Since you prefer riding ridiculously difficult terrain, it’s all the more important to have release values ideal for rallying said rowdiness. Bringing din values to tech bindings isn’t the only innovation involved with the yak.

Plum Unisex Guide Stopper Ski Touring Bindings Grey 95mm
Plum Unisex Guide Stopper Ski Touring Bindings Grey 95mm #ad - Ski hardware / ski bindings. Optimal energy absorption = maximized energy absorption minimized pre-releases.

Salomon MTN  Brake Alpine Touring Binding BlackBlue 80mm #ad
Salomon MTN + Brake Alpine Touring Binding Black/Blue, 80mm
Salomon MTN + Brake Alpine Touring Binding Black/Blue, 80mm #ad - Its classic u spring design holds three different release values to keep things safe for beginners still learning how to turn, and keep expert skiers attached to their planks as they reach mach speeds. These lifters face opposite than most to prevent falling down when you’re half-way up the mountain. Another unique feature with salmon’s mtn + is the wider screw integration that enhances energy transmission on the downhill. This binding comes with brakes to further assist in safety and convenience. Weighing under two pounds per pair, salomon’s mtn + brake alpine touring binding is certainly a minimalist that best suits gram-counting backcountry skiers, but unlike most tech bindings, the mtn + has variable release ratings to better suit an array of downhill skiers ranging from beginners to intermediates. As for the uphill, this binding has two heel lifters to help you tackle the steeps.

 

Plum Tech Bindings Yak M 14 Stopper Alpine Touring Binding One Color 115mm #ad
Plum Tech Bindings Yak M 14 Stopper Alpine Touring Binding One Color, 115mm
Plum Tech Bindings Yak M 14 Stopper Alpine Touring Binding One Color, 115mm #ad - The classic, rotating heel is pretty easy to switch from ski mode to walk mode–even with the two heel risers–using only your ski poles. When you know a pound underfoot equates to anywhere between five and ten pounds on your back, you want an ultralight setup so your legs can rally backcountry’s rowdy cliffs, steep couloirs, and high-altitude peaks. Plum changed the proximity of the yak’s tech pins for an easier step-in, making it easier for you to step in without multiple. Even with the brake included, plum tech’s yak m 14 stopper alpine touring binding still maintains a backcountry-friendly weight with a freeride-focused din for hard-charging, weight-conscious skiers who prefer traveling far for king lines. Bringing din release values to tech bindings isn’t the only innovation involved with the yak. But since this option only weighs a couple more ounces than the brake-less yak binding, you should be willing to haul a little extra weight for the security of your skis stopping sooner when you yard sale down one of those cliffs, couloirs, peaks, etc. You don’t even have to take your skis off. Embarrassing attempts in front of your friends.

Plum Tech Bindings Guide M Alpine Touring Binding Orange One Size #ad
Plum Tech Bindings Guide M Alpine Touring Binding Orange, One Size
Plum Tech Bindings Guide M Alpine Touring Binding Orange, One Size #ad - 5-12 release rating, these bindings don’t sacrifice safety when cutting weight. The lightweight is thanks to the aluminum construction, and with an adjustable 5. Whether it’s a multi-day trip through the alps or a springtime couloir-hunting mission in the rockies, you like to cover some serious ground in the backcountry. Three different heel risers can accommodate a wide variety of slope angles, and crampon compatibility comes in handy when you end up on firm, steep slopes. Plum’s guide m alpine touring binding is a solid choice for big days in the alpine, built for efficiency on the uphill, and solidity on the downhill.

 

G3 Ion LT 12 Alpine Touring Binding With Leash One Color 456g Single #ad
G3 Ion LT 12 Alpine Touring Binding With Leash One Color, 456g Single
G3 Ion LT 12 Alpine Touring Binding With Leash One Color, 456g Single #ad - Don’t be fooled by the ion lt’s lightweight design, because this binding still wants to rip descents like a burly freeride binding. The mounting pattern is wide to direct more power to the ski, and the forward pressure heel elasticity works to maintain consistent release values during landings and compressions. A lot of folks were liking what the g3 ion had to offer last season, but wanted to see a lighter, brake-less version for those long tours and big mountaineering objectives when every gram counts, so g3 took heed and developed the ion lt 12 alpine touring binding with leash for all of you minimalist, gram-counting backcountry skiers out there. You’ll find the same smart designs on the ion lt that reduce the amount of time you spend fiddling with your bindings thanks to easy step-in guides, which help direct the toe inserts on your boots into the toe pins, along with a snow clearing channel, which help to prevent snow and ice from accumulating on the toe piece, causing a false connection that can result in pre-releases. The heel piece can be turned in either direction, meaning you don’t have to turn the heel a full 360-degrees just to put it back into ski mode, and the quicklift heel risers are specifically designed to be easily grabbed with either a ski pole or by hand. Being the lightest offering in the ion lineup, the ion lt weighs just one pound per binding but maintains the same downhill prowess as its predecessors.

 

Atomic Tracker 13 MNC Alpine Touring Binding BlackSilver 90mmL #ad
Atomic Tracker 13 MNC Alpine Touring Binding Black/Silver, 90mm/L
Atomic Tracker 13 MNC Alpine Touring Binding Black/Silver, 90mm/L #ad - It skis like an alpine binding, with a rugged u power toe,oversized platform, and a din that goes to 13, but it’ll get you up to to those backcountry lines you want to ski too, thanks to the 90-degree toe pivot, flat nose, and hike-and-ride switch that can be operated while you’re still locked into the binding. The tracker certainly isn’t as light and fast as a tech binding, but if you’re more interested in short tours, big lines, and all-mountain versatility than long approaches and techy skiing, then it will definitely get the job done.

Salomon Guardian MNC 13 Alpine Touring Binding WhiteBlack S130mm #ad
Salomon Guardian MNC 13 Alpine Touring Binding White/Black, S/130mm
Salomon Guardian MNC 13 Alpine Touring Binding White/Black, S/130mm #ad - With retention that’s virtually identical to trusted alpine clamps, the guardian has a din that can be cranked all the way up to 13, so you won’t worry about stepping out of your bindings in sketchy areas, and a sliding afd and u power toe piece for consistent lateral and twisting release and reliable power transfer. A single flip-up climbing bail provides heel elevation for steeper ascents. The uphill ease of a tech binding counts for a lot, but sometimes the smooth skinning isn’t worth the occasionally questionable performance on the way down. When you need bomber skiing as well as solid skinning, an alpine-inspired at binding like the salomon guardian mnc 13 binding is where it’s at. The double full flex baseplate and burly aluminum tubes provide a flex-free platform, so you don’t feel like you’re floating independently of your skis, and the low-profile chassis keeps you close to the snow for increased control and a natural feel. Of course, all this would be for naught if the guardian was a pos on the way up. Even better, the guardian uses salomon’s mnc (multi-norm compatible) system, which means it’ll work with traditional alpine boots, at boots with rubber soles, salomon’s wtr boots, and even some tech boots, so you don’t have to buy extra gear to access your dream line. Luckily, it isn’t, with features like a flat nose that pivots 90 degrees for a natural stride and an easy hike & ride switch that can be activated without stepping out of the binding.

Plum Tech Bindings Guide XS Alpine Touring Binding One Color, One Size #ad - The guide xs alpine touring binding is slightly tougher than plum’s race-oriented offerings, yet light enough to conquer big objectives and multi-day trips, making this a great everyday binding for a weight-savvy backcountry fiend. Three heel risers accommodate a variety of slope angles to keep you efficient on the uphill, and plum’s too facile technology assures an easy step-in. The xs version uses slightly softer springs to accommodate smaller and lighter skiers, with the same lightweight aluminum construction as the traditional version.

Tyrolia mbition 12 Alpine Touring Binding Solid WhiteBlack One Size #ad
Tyrolia mbition 12 Alpine Touring Binding Solid White/Black, One Size
Tyrolia mbition 12 Alpine Touring Binding Solid White/Black, One Size #ad - 5lbs per binding, which isn’t featherweight but is 10oz lighter than the adrenalin, and has a wide 42mm footprint that’s designed with bigger skis in mind. If it seems like everyone and their mom is offering an at binding these days, it’s because they are. One of the drawbacks of standard at setups is an unpredictable change in the flex of the ski due to the long plate that’s mounted between the toe and heel pieces. As a bonus, this system also allows for virtually infinite adjustment, making the ambition a one-size-fits-all binding (all boot sole lengths between 260 and 350, anyway–you’ll be fine unless you’re an xxl sasquatch). Since larger skis require more powerful input, the ambition’s front bracket is made of metal, which resists torsional twist better than plastic, and also is less prone to the eventual toe slop that’s an unhappy feature of most plastic-bracket at bindings. The ambition weights in at 4. (Free gear tip just because mom offers you a discount on her homemade at bindings doesn’t mean you should buy them. It’s compatible with at and traditional alpine soles, and allows you switch between ski and walk modes without stepping out, saving you time and trouble. Tyrolia has also done an excellent job of keeping the 90-degree pivot point directly under the toe, giving the ambition an easier, more natural walking motion that’s enhanced by four climbing aid heights. Someth. ) Tyrolia was one of the more recent entrants into the freeride-oriented at game with the adrenalin, and now the 84-year-old binding manufacturer is serving up the lighter, faster ambition 12 alpine touring binding, which uses the same technology as the adrenalin but is a better bet for longer tours where covering serious ground takes precedent over hucking spine-compressing cliffs. In an inspired moment, tyrolia built the ambition with a freeflex system in which the heel and toe are connected by a floating tube, letting the ski flex naturally for a more predictable, consistent ride.
